SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware are two good ones.

I agree.

But don't forget using them must be combined with common sense, safe computing and safe surfing habits in order to provide the most complete protection.

Microsoft Security Essentials is also good as a real-time security software, and it is also free. I've been using it for a while with no problems. And windows firewall should be enough to protect you if you are a home Windows user.

Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) is a free antivirus solution which provides real-time protection that guards against viruses and malicious software. This page provides a brief overview of features and related security links. MSE Support provides several How-to videos for installing, scanning and addressing a detected threat. MSE was originally developed as a scaled-down version of and replacement for Windows OneCare and was aimed at users who either could not or did not want to pay for anti-virus and anti-malware software.
